Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara has joined the #GivingTuesday, a first
of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of
partners – charities, families, businesses and individuals – to transform how
people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding
with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season,
#GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve
their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and
causes they support, and help create a better world. Taking place on December
2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving - #GivingTuesday will harness the
power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays
dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become
days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. More than 10,000
organizations worldwide have joined the movement and are providing creative
ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts
to create more meaningful results.
Club is inviting charities, families, businesses, and other individuals to give
back in a better and smarter way this year. Be a part of a movement that will transform
how Santa Barbara thinks about, talks about, and participates in the act of
